revenues will have to go up on the most fortunate americans, why would you decide to take the economy over the if and put the economy through -- through the cliff and did the damage that would cost? because you are unwilling to agree to a modest set of rates for 2% of americans. it seems deeply implausible as a strategy and should be avoidable. >> why aren't you willing to say in order to avoid the economy going over the cliff we are willing to entertain a different way to get money out of the top 2%? that might involve some rather radical restructuring of deductions? >> when you take a hard look at the amount of resources you can raise from that top 2% of americans through limiting deductions, you will find yourself disappointed. we're looking for 1% of gdp. you are going to find it is hard to do that through deductions unless you want to raise taxes quite meaningful on middle-class americans. there are people who might argue that is a good policy. that is not the president's view. even if you think it is good policy, do you think it is more realistic? is it more politically realistic to

the consequence of not reaching a compromise for the american economy, the world economy, next year, would really be disastrous. we would be talking about a very deep recession. if we went over the cliff and didn't quickly bounce back from it. >> laura, you think there is a two-part solution, right? what do you mean by that? >> well, what i mean by that is we have the fiscal cliff, and then we have the need to get a long run compromise plan on deficit reduction over the next decade. i think we have to be realistic that the possibility of getting this long-run plan over a six-week period, eight-week period with a lame duck congress, that's a pretty low probability event. so i think we have to think about this as can we find a way to negotiate a deal which gets us through the cliff. that deal says something about the framework and the content of the ten-year deficit reduction plan. so my view is get through the cliff first, got to get a temporary deal to that. otherwise all the risks that marty says are very, very serious. but that has to be linked with the -- the outline, the framework, for a ten-

. if you look at the state of the american economy and you look at the 11 of the american -- level of american unemployment, president obama shouldn't be competitive in this race. he is competitive in part because the republican party's chose an weak candidate, isn't he? >> i don't think that's the case. i think an incumbent president is never weak. so i think a lot in this particular race, however, depends upon how the americans feel about their future, whether they really think that president obama has a plan to offer to get out of these economic troubles that we have been in. and so far i think none has been presented and that's why mitt romney i think has a very good chance of winning this race. because he's struck on the right subjects, he's talked about the need to get jobs, the need to get the economy going again. and i think he has a consistent theme. i think the president has lacked a consistent theme and that's why i think this race is competitive. >> ok, you walked -- worked in the obama administration and of course in the clinton administration. when the president was e

"the american economy" that is prior to government, prior to politics. and that government, if it's involved at all is only involved sort of at the end of the day, maybe tidying things up around the edges or redistributing money for some people to another and i think the financial crisis has been a rude awaken for those people who viewed the economic world that way. i think it's now very clear in retrospect that the decisions that leading public officials made over a period of decades helped to get us to a point where a financial crisis could be so devastating to all americans. >> how can this happen? i mean, how could washington turn its back on the broad middle class to favor a relatively few at the top in democracy? >> well, what has relreally changed is the organization of the american politics particularly the organizations that representative the deepest pocketed members of american spoipt what we've seen is an organizational revolution over the last 30 years that has meant that business and wall street and ideological conservative organizations that are pushing for free mar

that ultimately drives value to the american economy. our customer, i can completely agree with what shannon said in terms of our business objective, so to speak, is to empower entrepreneurs and innovators, to create jobs. that's a metric of success, not revenue generated per data set or some other per ifervance metric. the other piece of that looking back to the example of weather and gps, my monetization, is that together they contribute $100 billion to the american economy last year. last year alone from just those two data liberations. so, that is the way in which we are approaching from a strategy perspective, the ultimate impact to our customers. >> one super quick. one thing the city of san francisco or big cities or federal, right, the other smaller cities, smaller cities have smaller budgets. having a structure to support all this open data takes a lot of money. so, when these small cities are thinking about this, they should think about a way of somehow equalizing because they are putting into having these open data team, right? so, what does make sense? this is kind of an open question

, the domestic savings of the american economy declines and that is basically the root source of funding for capital investment, and capital investment is where productivity comes from and productivity is where economic growth comes from. so unless and until we recognize that we've got to slow the pace and, in fact, reduce the level of benefits to allow savings to come through and that will create the fact that economic growth which will enable us to fund the social benefits, we're running into a stone wall here in which the more social benefits we have which we don't contain, the lower the rate of savings, the lower the rate of growth and the less the quantity of real resources to fund the benefits. this is obviously an unsustainable situation, and the sooner we come to grips with it the better, and i raise the issue of allowing the bush tax cuts to rescind on schedule was not that i want taxes to go up, i think it's a terrible idea. relative to what? i mean, if we don't close this deficit fairly quickly, we are in real trouble. remember, it's always easier to cut taxes politically than

circumstances have a greater challenge is moving upward in the american economy. that has taken place for a number of reasons related to technology and globalization. what i think is important about our proposals is that by asking the top 2% to pay more, that will provide more opportunities for others to pick the same types of chances they had. what is the extra revenue going to be used for? it will be used to keep student loans low. it will be used to provide stem education in science and engineering and the kinds of opportunities that have made it possible for so many americans to thrive. if you look at what has happened to the income distribution in the u.s. over the last 30 years, we have seen the top pull away. it is wonderful they have done so well. it is important that we pursue the policies that will reduce the opportunities that and provide more opportunities for the lower and middle-income families. >> do you think 10 years from now our budget deficit will be under $10 trillion per year? where you think it will be realistically? >> i would like to see the president's fiscal
